The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East is one of only a few colleges in the country where trainee teachers can gain additional diplomas in Teaching English and Teaching Mathematics.
The specialist diplomas allow teachers to become fully qualified in teaching adults either English or maths, and can be taken concurrently with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE or PCE) or a Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS).
The College is still recruiting and looking for suitable candidates to enrol on the part time courses, which start next week (Monday 1 October).
Both the Additional Diploma in Teaching English (ESOL or Literacy) in the Lifelong Learning Sector Level 5 and the Additional Diploma in Teaching Mathematics (Numeracy) in the Lifelong Learning Sector Level 5 allow teachers to develop an understanding of either English or maths, develop own practice through personal research and professional development, and apply appropriate specialist learning strategies, including assessment for learning.
The entry criteria for both diplomas include a recognised teaching qualification, access to 75 hours of teaching and personal literacy or numeracy skills at Level 3.
Jane O’Neill, Vice Principal for Curriculum and Learner Experience, said: “Having these additional diplomas strengthens teachers’ skills and allows them to have that added value when looking for work. We value these qualifications and encourage people to apply.”
